Rock-based Sharp’s Brewery has appointed a new head of supply chain.

Donna Breakspear, who has been with Sharp’s for just over six years in the human resources department, succeeds Andrew Madden who has departed for pastures new in Scotland.

Madden moved into the head of supply chain role back in 2019 following a career as head brewer – a position which is now occupied by Aaron McClure.

Neil Haywood, UK regional operations director for parent company Molson Coors said: “I am delighted to appoint Donna into the head of supply chain role for Sharp’s Brewery. Donna’s passion for the brewery in Rock, the brands and the team make her the ideal leader to take the site forward.”

Sharp’s commercial director, Dai Griffiths continued: “I am absolutely delighted that Donna has been successful in her application for this key role, back full-time with us, here in Rock. This forms an exciting new chapter in her career and is fantastic news for all of us at the brewery – it’s safe to say we’re in very capable hands. I know this is a sentiment shared across the whole site.”
